Introduction

What Car? says...

Historically, BMW coupés have just been swoopier and less practical versions of their saloon car counterparts. Not any more, though – the BMW 4 Series is a rakish model in its own right, and entirely justifies its slightly higher price despite having fewer doors.

Sure, the 4 Series is still based on the same underpinnings as the more sensibly shaped BMW 3 Series saloon, but you probably wouldn't guess it from the styling. Indeed, the 4 Series looks quite different from anything else in the BMW range, mainly thanks to a face that (let’s be honest) not everyone will love.

Even if the BMW 4 Series does enough to justify its price premium over the 3 Series, how does it compare to the best coupés out there – including the Audi A5 and Mercedes C-Class Coupé?

That's what we'll tell you over the next few pages of this review, where we'll rate it for performance, interior quality and practicality, as well as telling you our favourite engine and trim options.

By the way, there's also an M performance car version of the 4 Series. You can read about that in our full BMW M4 review
